No, Ratan Tata did not comment on Modi’s rising popularity after the Pulwama attack


A post is being shared on Facebook by some users claiming that Ratan Tata has commented on the increase in Modi’s popularity in the country after the Pulwama attack. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.
The archived version of the post can be found here.

Claim:Ratan Tata: “In a country, if Prime Minister’s popularity increases due to the death of 65 soldiers, then nobody can save that country from getting destroyed”

Fact: The tweet attributed to Ratan Tata is from a fake Twitter handle. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

When checked for the tweet on Ratan Tata’s official Twitter handle, it is found that no such tweet was made from his handle. Also, if looked closely, it can be found that official Ratan Tata Twitter handle user name is ‘@RNTata2000’ whereas the username in the post is ‘@Rntata200’. When searched for the ‘@Rntata200’ account, nothing was found on Twitter with such name. So, it can be concluded that the tweet is from a fake account and the blue tick might have been photoshopped.

Finally, the tweet in the post is from a fake twitter handle.
